Roush Axle backs

Does anyone have the roush axle backs?? Im seeing comments from folks that they do in fact drone, can anyone comment? Mine is a daily driver and Im worried if I go Roush they will be too loud (85 miles per day)? I already ordered the GT500, in fact it's supposed to deliver today however I was having second thoughts. I heard the Roush last week and they were impressive.

If I do pull the trigger on installing the GT500 axle backs, is there anyway to make it louder down the road if its not loud enough?

Not to be a dick but you notice how 12 people have viewed this thread and not one person has made a comment. It's because this topic has been covered 100 times over. The best thing to do is a search first because it will get you the answer you are looking for faster than a response in a new thread.

Anyways.....the Roush sound great no drone and they aren't bad for a D.D. If you ever decide to go with a off road mid pipe you will probably hate it. I did and switched to the GT500s. I think you will like the GT500s just fine and if you ever want them louder get a O/R mid pipe and they will sound even better with no drone. Hope this helps.

No drone here. Highway speeds they're barely louder than stock.

+1. I commute 124 miles per day, mainly highway, and love my Roush ABs. Loud when i want them to be, quiet on the highway. No drone what so ever.

No drone with a 6speed MT, and 3.73 gears either.

I have the roush and while I love them I think I'm switching to the gt500, did you get the 11-12 style or the 13-14 quad tip? We can trade haha

I've read in other posts that the Roush sounds great with CB or AB plus the cats on. However, when going high flow or catless it becomes tinny, hollow and raspy.

I personally have the FLowmaster Hushpower catback with straight pipes. Not tinny or raspy at all. Has a nice deep tone to it and when the throttle is tapped it lets out a bark that's deep and aggressive. Very happy with it thus far.

This is true. After installing LTs and O/R X with my Roush it sounded like a beat up chevy pickup truck. Way to much rasp for me. I swapped them for some GT500s and couldnt be happier.

I have roush axle backs and I LOVE them. Mine is a DD too and no drone and sounds amazing! Not to loud but loud enough to know it isn't stock exhaust! You won't regret buying them that is for sure.
